Hopalong Cassidy




Hopalong Cassidy is a fictional cowboy-hero, created in 1904 by Clarence E. Mulford and appearing in a series of popular stories and later novels. Here the character appears as a rude, rough-talking 'galoot'. Beginning in 1935, the character, played by William Boyd was transformed into the clean-cut hero of a series of 66 immensely popular films, only a few of which were based on Mulford's works, but which led, in turn, to a comic book series modelled after the films.

On June 24, 1949, Hoppy became the first network Western television series, airing on NBC. At first NBC fashioned the shows out of the films after paying Boyd, who owned the TV rights to his films, a quarter-million dollars for them. The footage later shot for the TV series starred Boyd, with Edgar Buchanan as his sidekick "Red Connors" and numerous tie-ins. The theme music for the TV show was written by veteran songwriters Nacio Herb Brown (music) and L. Wolfe Gilbert (lyrics). The show ranked number 7 in the 1949 Nielsen ratings. The Mutual Broadcasting System began broadcasting a radio version of Hopalong Cassidy in January 1950; at the end of September, the show moved to CBS Radio, where it ran into 1952.

Subject: Need to Edit Some Shows. Recordings Skip.
Many shows play OK except for changes in sound levels. Need to edit some shows, though. The recordings skip, like in Death Paints a Picture and the one after that.

Subject: Coltsville audio baf
Coltsville Territory is a bad recording of previous show and should be removed.

Subject: Zip File Is Only 11 MB
The ZIP File only covers the big 12 MB episode (Track 2), which is also what the Flash player shows. The Flash Player doesn't see the other tracks & the ZIP file apparently doesn't include them either.

This needs to be re-packed.
